Testimonials

John Calcagni was very professional

Criminal Defense Open and Gross Lewdness: DISMISSED

I am a U.S. Soldier who was recently charged with a civilian criminal offense. I first met Attorney Calcagni at my arraignment at the courthouse. He informed me of his military background and extensive experience defending service members. As a result I accepted his business card and agreed to contact him for an initial client consultation.

When I first walked into Attorney Calcagni’s office I was a bit nervous. I had never been charged with a crime or consulted with an attorney before. I also knew that as a service members if I was convicted of a crime of any type my military career would be over. After talking with Attorney Calcagni he was able to make a tough and stressful time for me seem much easier.

He was eager to hear about my case and determined to defend against my charge in order to preserve my military career. After appearing in Court together on a couple of occasions he was able to convince the District Attorney to dismiss the case against me. John Calcagni was very professional and a true pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to defend anyone’s case. He is an awesome lawyer and a fellow Soldier. I will never forget how he helped to both win my case and save my career.


Thanks for orchestrating a complete dismissal of all charges

Driving without License and Unregistered Vehicle: DISMISSED

I was scared when I got my first ever criminal summons but Attorney Calcagni’s website suggested to me that a calm cool super-experienced hand was out there ready to help.

And this website was right! I am so grateful to Attorney Calcagni for his professionalism skill savvy and epic intelligence. John quickly turned what could have been a fraught and upsetting experience into something about as suspenseful as a trip to the post office.

Thanks for orchestrating a complete dismissal of all charges brought against me. Needless to say I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of a crack defense lawyer. God bless.


Attorney John Calcagni is a Godsend!- West Point Cadet

General Court Martial Defense – Three counts of Sexual Assault Article 120: 2 Charges DISMISSED 3rd Sentence reduced

Attorney John Calcagni is a Godsend! I cannot express how grateful I am for all the work he put into my General Court Martial. He is undoubtedly well versed and very thorough as an attorney. John constantly puts forth his best effort. The most important thing for me was the fact that he personally cared about what happened to me. His experiences and familiarization with the military’s justice system criminal practice and formalities made him an exceptional attorney for me.

Having never received so much as a speeding ticket before I was greatly unfamiliar with the judicial process. I did not know where to begin. It took a lot of searching; I spoke to several civilian attorneys but after speaking to John I knew that I was done looking. John was very patient with me. He took his time listening and understanding my case in every detail. He slowly explained all the possible options I had to choose from—in terms that I could understand!

The relationship I had with my U.S. Army Trial Defense Service (TDS) lawyer was very different from my relationship with John. John was able to work well with my TDS lawyers but it was apparent that he was in an entirely different league than them. John never made a decision without consulting me first and he always sent me email traffic between him and anyone else involved in my case. This kept me well informed and let me know he was working hard on things for me. Even better than working with my TDS lawyer was how well he worked with my family and kept them all reassured and calm!

After retaining John I was never worried about having to contact him to ask questions. It was a comfort knowing that I had someone working on my side that took my case to heart. He genuinely cared about what happened to me! That made the process much easier. He was not just helping me legally but he helped me remain calm. Scheduling times to meet was always too easy despite both of our busy lives. He was always straight forward with me. If I had a quick question I would text him and he would give me an answer shortly after. There was never any wondering about if and when I would hear from him or any doubt as to what he needed from me.

My General Court Martial was convened on 23 July 2012. I was charged with three counts of Article 120 Sexual Assault. I faced the possibilities of being sent to prison being discharged from the military and having to register as a sex offender! However the factual severity of the offense did not match the charges. So having accepted responsibility for my actions I pleaded guilty to 2 counts of Article 128 Assault Consummated by Battery. I was then sentenced to receive a General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand (GOMOR) – the sentence that Attorney Calcagni requested and fought for. My family and I are extremely happy with this outcome.

As I stated before John lets you make the decisions after giving you all the options first. And he doesn’t sugar coat the situation. Even when we were confident things would go my way he didn’t let that stop him from being thorough! He drafted a deferment request in advance of going to court so if I was sentenced to jail we could have asked that it be deferred. John also made a personal portfolio with the statements from my character witnesses all of my awards academic successes and personalized photographs. He then used these materials to reveal to the judge what kind of a person I actually am opposed to that portrayed by the prosecutor. This along with Attorney Calcagni’s questioning of witnesses and arguments to the Court gave the judge a lot consider when considering an appropriate sentence for my one-time admitted mistake. In the end it all worked out in my favor thanks to John.

If I or someone I care about should ever get into any trouble and need legal assistance I know that I will call John immediately. I seriously doubt you can find better than him.

Criminal Defense for Multiple OUI and Motor Vehicle Offenses

After picking up three consecutive OUI charges in fifteen months I could have been spending the next two years in jail away from my family friends and business. John was by my side every step in the way.

I felt very confident with him as my attorney. Each decision was planned explained and executed clearly so I always knew what was going on. With the support John provided I always felt a sense of comfort and optimism throughout the entire process even though it was my first time in the court system as well as a correctional facility.

He was there for my family and friends while I was away and also spoke on my behalf at my place of work to insure that my job would be waiting for me when I was released in just 50 days. To this day John and I keep in touch during the aftermath of my jail sentence and release back into the world.

He is an attorney that cares about those he represents during and after the case; and all for a reasonable price. I appreciate all you have and continue to do for me John. Thanks again.


I would highly recommend John

Criminal Defense of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) and Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Breath Test:

I was charged with both Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) and Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Breath Test. A friend referred me to Attorney John Calcagni.

John and I met for the first time at my kitchen table when he visited my home for a consultation. I knew right away that he was a very confident and caring lawyer. He explained exactly what would happen in court step-by-step. We did had several future meetings and John always had the ability to diminish my nervousness and anxiety associated with the court and criminal justice system. He was always available for any questions I had and never ignored me. He returned every phone call and email in a timely manner.

At my court appearance I was looking to lose my license for six months but John had it reduced to three months. I would highly recommend John to anyone with a legal matter. He not only represents you as a lawyer but you think of and call upon him as your friend. Thank you so much John.


Attorney Calcagni has changed my life for the better

Multiple Outstanding Warrants VACATED and CASES CLOSED.

I cannot express my thanks enough for Attorney Calcagni’s assistance with the termination of my multiple bench warrants and closure of my cases. As a kid I made many bad choices some resulting in arrests and arraignments. Regretfully I was unable to handle these consequences with the previous lifestyle I was living. I subsequently moved out of state prematurely without answering to or closing our my existing criminal cases.

After changing my lifestyle and living a more positive and productive life I decided it was time to face my open cases and then-arrest warrants. I struggled to find a lawyer who was able to help me in this regard by hastily doing the necessary leg work for my appearance and surrender in court. Thankfully Attorney Calcagni answered my call and was able to clearly explain and walk me though the process of how to eliminate my multiple bench warrants and close out their related cases. After retaining Attorney Calcagni’s services he did the necessary leg work scheduled my surrenders before multiple courts on the same day appeared with me in court helped to vacate each warrant and then helped to close each case.

His efforts alleviated years of stress and concern within a few short hours. Attorney Calcagni has changed my life for the better. I cannot thank him enough and will not hesitate to recommend his law office to any others who may be in need of legal services in the future.


He is an excellent human being and an excellent lawyer.

When I found out that my husband had been arrested I was very frightened. I didn’t know what to do or whom to call. I found Attorney John Calcagni’s website.

I called him praying that he would be the one for my husband’s case and thank God that’s how it was from the first time I tried to contact him he returned my call immediately he was very honest with me very professional very attentive and very patient especially since my English is not very good.

He was always very worried about me and encouraged me to be calm. He always answered my calls and while my husband was in jail he always did excellent work and thanks to him today my husband is once again at home with me and our daughter. I don’t know how to express the gratitude I feel for Attorney Calcagni.

He is an excellent human being and an excellent lawyer. I am very satisfied with his work and the results he obtained for my husband. I am infinitely thankful for Attorney Calcagni’s dedication. I heartily recommend the services he provides. God bless you and many many thanks.


We would not hesitate to hire him again

Attempted Breaking into a Depository; Four Counts of Receiving Stolen Property; and Possession of a Controlled Substance: Continued Without a Finding.

When John asked us to write a testimonial for his website we thought of this as an opportunity to not only thank him but also as a chance to give other families who might be facing similar circumstances a sense of comfort knowing their son or daughter would be in good hands if represented by Attorney Calcagni. Our son made poor choices that got him into trouble. He needed to own up and accept responsibility but as parents we needed to give him the best chance for getting his life back on track. We did that by retaining Attorney Calcagni to defend him in court against criminal charges.

With John’s sound legal advice and insightful understanding of our son as a troubled teenager (and not a criminal) we were able to achieve the best possible legal outcome for him. John’s success in this situation can be attributed to a number of things. At the outset our son M was able to connect with John; he made himself “approachable.” Of equal importance was John’s in-depth legal knowledge and skill when communicating with the District Attorney as well as the presiding Judge assigned to M’s case.

There are many attorneys to choose from who are knowledgeable and skilled at practicing law but we experienced something far more valuable with John. He took the time to get to know our family dynamics and our son. In the end it was John’s insightful understanding of us and what we valued most for our son that yielded the results we were hoping for. We would not hesitate to hire him against or to recommend him to others. Thank you John!!


I am extremely grateful to him

Large Scale Drug Trafficker Who Faced Possible 40-Year Sentence RELEASED ON TIME SERVED After Spending 17 Months in Jail.

This testimony is to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. John Calcagni for his excellent work his honesty and all the effort that he dedicated to my case. From the beginning he always sought out the most effective way to reunite me with my family as quickly as possible something which he succeeded in doing.

I always noticed that he would put himself in my situation and understood perfectly my pain and desperation; as a lawyer he is excellent and as a person I have not met many like him in my life. After all the experiences which I had with him and I know how painful it is to be incarcerated I strongly recommended him and will continue doing so since he is someone who is totally honest intelligent and someone who works diligently for the sake of his clients and their families.

I am extremely grateful to him as a friend and as a client for all his effort understanding and good will. From the bottom of my heart many thanks.
